for us. where we did the right thing many, many years ago. one of the deputies said they might have had meetings last year and the owner was given the same information. so i'm a little bit concerned about how this played out and the train has left the station. a lot of the tenants have decided to leave. i'm afraid we're in a situation where the owner is saying well, this is the eviction notices are out. i kind of want to go public and i know we visited smoking gun someone from the rent board >> i had no response. >> yeah, but there are people from the building so we'll hear from them and randy was the - there was only one piece of paper that addressed the issue. the real big thing is we've got to get our side of the story out there. because as a stand i identification talking to a few people and you're starting to evict artists it's so frustrating to hear that. this is a very big and important situation we've got to correct this and do what we. so as a commissioner we're all on board to do whatever it takes to work you with you. and the directors and deputy directors have laid out the

uses on central block two. most of it goes on central block two. then central block two is the map -- main block where the central block area is except the metro building. we lease the land under the met troin and that's another revenue generating use. then central block 3, is children's focus block. he we don't own any improvements, but we lease the land. we lease all the land in which all the improvements sit. the children's garden, the child center and the ice skating center. so here, again, we've had conversations with the city about this and with these stake holders out there and yes, -- yerba buena gardens and the plans are to transfer the assets of the city and continue to manage in some unified fashion. and the city has stated publically they are committed to keeping them together and managing them together but the exact management structure has yet to be determined whether it be some city department or separate non-profit or possibly some separate authority. but the estimated transfer date here is sometimes 2015, probably. and the city could then continue to use the fund

recognize people because this is the work that officer chin was too great that it helped us a lot in the work that we do that we feel compelled to recognize him at this time and this is timely because this is her last year of doing this, year end summary for 2012 wrapping up the accident statistics for us. officer chin started with the pd back in 30 plus years ago and the last 15 years or so she worked in the record's room and working with us in getting all the accident statistics, the collision data. and also summarizing the year end fatal and injury collisions and she was kind enough and generous enough to share that data for us and for us that's a big deal because as you know the chp's -- the state wide traffic system because of resource constraints, they've been taking quite a bit of time to turn around the year end summaries for us, so without that information that she is sharing with us, we would have been in big trouble in terms of analyzing particular locations for improvements, so it has been really important for us and we just want to take this opportunity to recognize

space for us to react to the issues reacting in time and making sure that we are looking in the forward and not just in the past, at the california, department of justice and one of the issues that i know that brown did is look at all of the statutory required report and say did someone actually use this or did it go into a box? and so, for me, it would be great if you guys could talk about that or give a sense of what we called and, if we have any sense of whether this is just on the list that is required to an admin code or whether we really identified that there is something who use its and it is valuable information and because i know that i feel for myself that there is always information that i want from the department and i feel like recognizing the resources and that i want to make sure that they have room to be responsible to this commission. and just keeping up what was in the past. >> thank you, commissioner loftus, for your comments. and you are right, that is one of the reasons why, we started to work on this and created this resolution, is because, we really did not have t
